All Eyes on Armani

  • Precious Galuchat
  • Precious Leather

For the first time, Italian designer Giorgio Armani is integrating precious metals and exotic leathers into sunglass and eyewear collections. The new line features hand-finished glasses in two distinct women’s styles—a pair of metal glasses with leather finishes ($375) and a pair of plastic glasses with stingray details ($365). The highlight is a pair of unisex 22-karat gold aviator frames ($1,350) that are embellished with Indian water buffalo horn on the bridge and temple tips. They are available with dark green polarized lenses and come in a brown leather case. (800.850.3919, www.armani.com)
